32% of all plastic products created on Earth wind up somewhere they’re not supposed to be- mainly the oceans . Moreover, the amount of plastic waste continues to increase. In response to this, Berkeley based green design firm and sailing enthusiast Albatross Designs has recently launched their first product: Albatross SHAVES the World from Plastic, a campaign to eliminate plastic from the shaving equation by convincing Americans to return to the classic double edged safety razor. Safety razors provide a closer, more smooth shave than plastic and cartridge ones, plus replacement blades are only 15 cents. The best part though, is the elimination of plastic from the act of shaving. Over 2 billion plastic razors are thrown out each year in the US alone, but Albatross is working to change this.
